Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT)

In 2013-2014 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard. In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

    All three of my kids attend this school. It has been an excellent experience. Each child is very different with unique needs. The Churchill community has been extremely attentive and understanding. Teacher quality and parent involvement is outstanding. In addition my children are exposed the little diversity the Glen Ellyn community has to offer. They are learning to respect and embrace individual differences which is an invaluable experience in today's society. Highly recommend.

    Churchill is an amazing school!! Out of all the schools in Glen Ellyn I feel blessed that this is where we landed. The parents and staff care so much about ALL children and my students have excelled when they went on to Hadley/West. They are caring hardworking students who do not live in a bubble give back and do amazingly well in school. I am lucky!!

    I have two children at Churchill who are in special ed. Churchill staff administrators and teachers always give my kids the attention and care they need to get through their school day. Churchill also has a very large percentage of kids - over 20% - who are not native english speakers these children speak over a dozen different languages yet Churchill manages to stay above average in every category.

    Very strong math and reading curriculum. Weekly music and art classes with special musical yearly and art available on 'Artsonia'. Good physical education class daily and encouragement to be active on school breaks. Parents very involved in PTA activities.

    Churchill offers a great education to a diverse population. I do not know of another school where the students experience such diversity and receive an outstanding education. Students not only learn academia but also experience how to live and work with people that are not just like them. Students also learn that despite our differences we are also very much alike. The class sizes are small which facilitates greater learning and allows the teachers to differentiate. The biggest issue is that we are out of space. The bathrooms lunch room gym and music and art rooms get no rest and are very crowded. Presently we have portables to keep class sizes down but that does not help the areas that are crowded. Next year we will have 3 children at Churchill and I could not ask for a better place for our children to be educated.

    I have a 2nd grade boy in this school.He loves it. We moved from Maywood Illinois. And I can say that the teachers make the kids think more give more homework and try new things. My family and I won't more because our other two boyz will also attend Churchill.
